There are tons of ways to enjoy the last days of winter on Long Island.
Spring is just around the corner, but Monday’s snow predictions say that we may be in for one last day of snow. With the weather that has hit Long Island this season, most of us are getting pretty sick of the snow, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make the best of it and try to enjoy what will most likely be the last snow storm of the winter.
Check out these great winter outdoor activities around Long Island that everyone can enjoy:
There are a lot of locations around Suffolk and Nassau Counties where families can go for some good old fashioned sledding. Here is a list of official locations in our area:
There are some unofficial sledding hills around the island as well. These hills may be unsupervised, so remember to be safe.
Cross Country Skiing
As we are all aware, there is not much Long Island has to offer in the ways of mountains or skiing. The great thing about cross country skiing is that you can do it anywhere. As long as there is enough snow on the ground, many people can make a trail right from their front door.
There are also many mapped out trails throughout Long Island where skiers can enjoy beautiful views. Remember to check the weather report and to be sure there is a safe amount of snow on the ground before heading out.
Who doesn’t enjoy a day of ice skating with their family? Not all of these places offer skate rentals, so make sure you call ahead or show up prepared.
There are less than three weeks before winter officially comes to an end. If we are lucky enough to get yet another snow day this week, enjoy it because it will probably be the last one we see until next winter!
